Homemade Mazapan


Roasted unsalted peanuts Powdered sugar

Blend until smooth


In a food processor, using the blade attachment, blend half of the peanuts on medium speed. Then, add the remaining half and blend again. Add the powdered sugar and blend until smooth.

Form the mazapan


Using a round cookie cutter, add some of the peanut mixture. Pack in the mixture into the cookie mold. Gently remove to separate the candy from the mold.



Do not make them too big. They will fall apart because of their fragile texture, there’s no way around it. Wrap in parchment paper or clear plastic paper.
